Andre Leon Talley, a prolific force in fashion and trailblazer, has passed away at the age of 73. He is best known for his role as the former Editor-at-Large at Vogue, often serving as confident and consultant to longtime Editor-in-Chief, Anna Wintour. As tall man, standing 6’6”, he was known for wearing long and luxurious flowing, often custom made m, capes and coats. He was friends with established designers such as Yves Saint Laurent and Karl Lagerfeld but also looked for and nurtured up and coming designers. Andre Leon Talley’s reach on the fashion industry spread wide and he will surely be missed.
